Earth’s Glory

“The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness, the world and those that dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1) With those words in mind and believing that God can speak to us through creation, I took a two-mile walk. .The sun was shining vibrantly, warming me and the earth. On the other hand, the wind was blowing briskly, invigorating my steps and reminding me that creation has variety.

Letter from a Birmingham Jail: MLK Jr. Gave a Classic for the Ages

Editors note: This letter was written by Martin Luther King Jr. after he was jailed for protesting the unjust treatment of African-Americans. He did so to draw attention to the issue and his act of civil disobedience is an example of how Christians are to deal with unjust action by their government. This is an abridged version due to space limitation.

Blessed Departure

by Pastor Steve Ellison

We often get the idea that the disciples and other first century Jews had a great advantage over us today; they got to walk and talk with Jesus while He was here on earth in the flesh. However, Jesus contradicts that thought in the great final teaching discourse He delivered to the disciples on the night before His crucifixion. Jesus plainly taught His disciples that they

Good Thinking: In Bleak Mid-Winter

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“In the bleak mid-winter frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.” — Christina Rossetti

Winter is a tough time! Temperatures plunge. Thermometers range from 32 to 0 degrees. The wind-chill freezes us to the bone. The good earth is frozen hard as concrete. Water turns to ice. The sun hides its face. Clouds cover the sky. Our days are short.

A Matter of Perspective

ShepherdCalls_WPIt’s a beautiful story. It’s more than a story. It’s fact. Peggy Wallace Kennedy, daughter of the late governor George Wallace, and Donzaleigh Abernathy, daughter of the late civil rights activist Ralph David Abernathy, each witnessed the Selma Alabama civil rights march 50 years ago and emerged with the same opinions.

Jesus’ words, “Out of the mouth of babes” (Matthew 21:16) comes to mind as I think about this story.

The Sanctity of Life

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Most humans will concede in theory that life is sacred. However, many people will, under pressure, give in to ignoble desires and proclaim that exceptions ought to be made. God does not allow for that kind of reasoning; He is very strict and firm regarding the absolute sanctity of all human life.

Genesis 1:26 tells us that God planned to create man in His image. The
